    nWoD/CoC/X-Files - The Shadows - OOC

    I don't know, I might not be able to really run this here but I had this random thought about a game set in modern days. PC's would be from different branches of government who are recruited by some agency to investigate various mysterious occurances that the general populace must be protected from.

    PC's: Cops, Military, FBI Agents etc...

    "Enemies": Aliens, Vampires, Ancient Horrors...

    What do you think? Any ideas? Would you be interested to play. Would you take it badly if I had to announce that I couldn't run it afterall . (I'm in the middle of reading to an important exam that is on june, and this makes it difficult for me to consentrate GM'ing a party-game.)

    Okay, a bit more coherent post now that I have had time to think this over. So I'm thinking about a nWoD game with no more than 4 players. The theme would be something like CoC mixed with X-Files. Some horror (I'm not really good on that ), mysteries, protecting the populace from things they're not supposed to know, preventing aliens from overrunnig the goverment etc... The beginning would be a short encounter where the truth is revealed in it's all horror to the PC's and they'd be recruited to the "Organization".

    It sounds pretty cool!

    I'll have to re-examine my...kind of embarrassingly huge roster of games I'm in to make sure I can spare time for this. I'm also a little skittish of your (appreciated) noting that you yourself might not actually have time to run it.

    My suggestion would be that if you're not sure you have time, you probably shouldn't. As much as it pains me to say.

    That said, if you do decide to run it, the new WoD is intriguing to me.

    Standard character generation, I assume? No templates or any such thing?

    Yeah, I think that by limiting the players to max 4 I can make it easier for me to run it. And if those players all were as committed players as I know you to be, it certainly would help .

    As for characters I was truly thinking standard creation. No templates yet but there's no saying what will happen in-game . Character consept would best be different branches of law-enforcement as I already stated. Anyone with remotely good reason to be part of crime-scene investigation would fit my starting scene perfectly.

    Hee!

    I have an idea for a doctor doing a hospital internship who has a brush with the supernatural...she could easily become a forensic specialist following that, as she develops a taste for sleuthing and some contacts in the local police force.

    Yeah, I think ultimately the problem with P-H was that I allowed too many people in and I had troubles with making logical settings in the 30's. Both of which I'm going to correct in this one. Sorry to hear you don't have the book Voda

    I'm in if its NWoD.
